Serenade of the Seas

February 2016 - Serenade of the Seas to Caribbean - Southern

A good get away - if you're older...

The Serenade of the Seas was nice, would recommend this cruise ship for "older" cruisers.  Also, it is not the top of the line in the RC fleet.  The ships staff and on/off boarding processes were one of our better experiences.  Our ports of call were:  Tortola, St Kitts, Martinique, Antigua, St Marten.  We were disappointed in Tortola, Martinique & Antigua. Tortola's shopping area just opened the week before we arrived and very few stores were open.  In Martinique, there was little shopping, language barriers, and an uncertainty of exactly where things were.  We were also told it was a long walk back to ship and we should take a taxi.  We over heard another passenger say "follow the blue sidewalk to get you back to the ship" - that was good advise.  The walk was less than 10 - 15 minutes.  Again, in Antigua there was little shopping close to the ports.  Our experiences in St Kitts and St Marten were much better and would enjoy going back to these ports.  In St Marten, we went scuba diving and would recommend Octopus Diving for a fantastic experience (we are not certified and were given great instructions prior to our two dives).  It was the highlight of our trip and look forward to scuba diving again. 

We do plan on cruising again soon.  No matter the age of people on the ship, your cruise is what you make it.  We introduced ourselves, mingled and met some wonderful people from all over the world/country, participated in events and made the cruise interesting and enjoyable.  The much needed time away was great and again look forward to our next cruise.

Cruiser404's Tips

Serenade of the Seas Serenade of the Seas - Would highly recommend purchasing the drink card package - you don't have to mess with signing and keeping receipts. Review excursion options prior to setting sail, do some investigating on your own. Most events held at the R-Bar (4th floor) - get there early, very little seating.
